For the past decade and a half, women 35 years and older have been the primary users of Botox, often at med spas or dermatology clinics. However, according to the International Spa Association, 56 percent of millennials have visited a spa within the last year. And thanks in part to a surge of interest from image-conscious millennials, the U.S. spa industry is now worth $16.3 billion. In keeping with that trend, more and more young people are receiving Botox treatments.
For many of us, a trip to the nail salon means soaking your hands or feet in a warm, bubbling bath while indulging in a few minutes of relaxation. But believe it or not, water is not a required part of the soaking process. In fact, if not cleaned properly, foot baths and nail tools can increase the risk of bacterial infection. Enter Letisha Royster, the founder of the Waterless Medi-Pedi & Nail Spa, an alternative natural nail spa performing soakless manicures and pedicures. WMPN protects client's health by eliminating soaking and reducing the risk of nail infections.

Everyone has had a sleepless night once in a while, and we all have gone through periods of unwelcome insomnia. But some people have far less good sleep than others. In fact, one-third of adults in the United States report inadequate sleep. It's well recognized that as we get older, our sleep patterns change. Older people sleep less, wake and go back to sleep more often, and spend less time in deep sleep or dreaming than younger people.
Sticking needles in your body may not sound like the most pleasant experience, but acupuncture has millions of devotees who use it to treat many ailments.

Daily routines can be a welcome thing — even downright comforting sometimes when everything else is chaotic. However, there is a fine line between an efficient routine and getting stuck in a rut. The bottom line is, science has shown that no matter how old we are or how hardwired we may think something is, our brains can change. Giving our brains a chance to stretch a bit can add a little creativity and spice to our normal order. Here are four ways to tell you need a refresh.
Whether you're running an established small business or just starting your journey toward entrepreneurship, it's safe to assume most business owners are on the hunt for new ways to grow their enterprise and improve their bottom line.

Our inboxes are constantly filled with ways to adjust digital marketing tactics to meet the demands of millennials and Generation Zers, but there's one generation with just as strong spending power that's often left out of the mix: baby boomers. But how you approach boomers in the digital arena isn't a matter of pushing existing marketing campaigns onto their screens. Just like their generational counterparts, there are nuances to the boomer population that should be considered.

While most of us are regularly analyzing our social media efforts, 58 percent of marketers said they were not able to measure their return on investment. In essence, we're investing a lot of time, money and energy, and we're not quite sure whether it's worth it. That's why The Harvard Business Review has conducted 23 experiments over the last four years involving more than 18,000 people to research whether attracting and engaging social media followers leads to increased sales.

Tumors have long been suspected of hijacking stem cell mechanisms used for tissue maintenance and repair. Ge et al. now show that skin tumors exhibit merged chromatin profiles from distinct stem cell lineages. This "lineage infidelity" recreates a state akin to transient wound repair that persists to maintain uncontrolled growth.
Learning through inquiry is one of the most "natural" and organic forms of learning.
In addition to learning through play, mentorship, and self-directed learning, inquiry-based learning happens whether we plan for it or not. When anyone is curious or confused and then uses that curiosity or confusion to drive their own learning, they're "doing" inquiry-based learning.

A lot of ink is spilled in discussions over whether young people — those now entering the workforce and those still in school — need or use different skills, or learn and process information differently, from those of us raised in the pre-internet Dark Ages. Even more ink and angst are devoted to questions of how to diversify the workforce, particularly in science, technology, engineering, and math fields, which still tend to be overwhelmingly male and white, at least in the United States.
These are big questions that center on engaging young people from diverse backgrounds in technology. Responding to these challenges requires addressing questions of access to and comfort with technology.
